First off; as far as the office work goes: we have signed up for the two races that we are planning to attend. We are now making preparations for our first race hosted by
in Fox Valley Technical College . This event will be on April 27-28th and will take place at the Wisconsin International Raceway. The second race that we are signed up for will take place at Road Appleton, WI on May 14-15th. In preparation for these events we are also researching hotel accommodations and transportation. We have found that this part of the project will require much more money that we had first anticipated. As such we are beginning to budget for these things and planning fundraisers to ensure that we have the funds available. Any help financial help would be greatly appreciated. America
On to the exciting parts! Our newest car is beginning to look like a road worthy vehicle. The frame is completely finished and we have begun to add the essential details; such as, you know a fire wall, tires, a steering wheel, and a MOTOR!!!!!!! We have almost finished attaching the nose-cone like body to the front and have installed our throttle cable. The car has really come together and now we have begun to time our drivers to work on their speedy exits. There are only a few rivets to put in and we will be ready to install a seat. We are awaiting a new sprocket for our rear tire and then we will be able to assemble the drive components and breaks and test drive our car.
A small group of guys have been hard at work on general maintenance of the old car. We plan to run this vehicle at events as well and hopefully with some of the work that we have done we have improved the gas mileage of this vehicle.
All in all; we have accomplished a lot in the last few weeks and we are excited to have moved on to the small details that will complete our project.
